Bard Prep Classes and Lessons start this Saturday January 24th and we look forward to seeing all of our students and families and getting down to work! Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions about your child’s schedule.
A NOTE ABOUT THIS AND UPCOMING NEWSLETTERS:
This semester, in an effort to avoid information overload, we have created a page of links to help keep track of important, but not new, information. Rather than re-list upcoming recital dates, practice buddy lists, concert series, and other posts every week, that information will be moved to the new “Important Bard Prep Informational Links” page. Please see that page for a list of links that might be of use to you throughout the semester.
Thanks and see you this Saturday, January 24th!
The first BAKE SALE of the spring semester will take place this Saturday, January 24 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. The Bake Sale is a crucial part of the fundraising operation of the Preparatory Division and it provides a much-needed service by providing food for our families and students during their busy Saturdays at Bard!
It is a win-win for the program and we need your help to keep it operating.
Last semester, we were able to raise a total of $4,172 from both the Bake Sale and Book Sale! All proceeds go towards the Prep Scholarship Fund.
Please consider BAKING an entree or goody or SIGNING UP for a shift to work at the table. All kinds of dishes are welcome, but for specific suggestions please see the Bake Sale Page Here.
